Dear Texas Plumeria;

As a flower lover, I often search through countless images of flowers. Once in a great while, I come across one that stops me in my tracks: this is one such image! You have done an INCREDIBLE job with this miracle of the plant kingdom!

Just look at it! It is at once both unworldly and mesmerizing...demanding one's attention and (dare I say it?) reverence...

Thank you for sharing this jewel with us! Could you possibly post a photo of the bloom opened?

Blessings;

Queen Dreama Acorn Hurray! Lovey dubby Thank You!

Thank you @QueenDreama! Here's a photo of the bloom. It's definitely otherworldly and unique. I also had quite a few blooms this year since I kept deadheading it. I really appreciate your compliment. Smiling Thumbs up
